Do I really need a rifle? My bug out firearm is my handgun, but I brought a Rem 870 12 gauge for if things really get bad now everyone tells me I need a rifle. Look I'm just a civilian trying to be prepared, I'm not looking to be a one man army because I know that's a good way to get myself killed, I'm not thinking about zombie invasions... Ok maybe I do think about zombie invasions lol... I just want to be prepared to feed, hydrate and protect myself and my family if I ever have one. So what is it guys? Do I need to drop the money on the rifle, training, ammo and accesories or is my 12 gauge and handgun combo suffecient enough for any or atleast most situations? I need some help so I'll take anyone's opinion no matter what you say. I just want to know if I'm not doing enough for my protection and survival when it comes to firearms.
